Mio Holiday Lights Parade
By Jessica Boyce
The Holiday Lights Parade is happening this Saturday in Mio and there couldn’t be a better way to gear up for the holidays. The parade itself starts at 6:00 pm, but Santa will be at American Physical Therapy starting at 5:00 pm to talk to kids before the parade.
The parade has been taking place in Mio for around 10 years and the Chamber of Commerce says, “The more lights, the merrier.” Downtown Mio is where the festivities will be happening and the parade will start north of town and proceed south down main street. Right now they have about 15 participants lined up for the Holiday Lights Parade, but there is still time if you would like to be a part of it. The Chamber will take applicants right up until the day before and will work you into the parade. Floats and participants can be businesses, organizations, and even individuals.
The lighting of the Christmas tree will take place following the Holiday Lights Parade on the courthouse lawn. You can call the Chamber of Commerce for Oscoda County at (989) 826-3331 if you have any questions or would like to be a part of the parade.
